Looking for A1 fly ram

Looking for a friend. His ram just cracked and its hard finding parts for angels anymore. Can someone help out? Not sure what year or if it matters but its still one of the newer a1 fly with opening breach. I can find one for the ar:k but not the one with the turn knob.

Heh, you know NPF was the Green brothers' first paintball venture and the parent company of WDP, right? If you look at the diagrams and copyright info on the LCD-era manual it's all registered to NPF Ltd

They may have sold out. You might try calling them up and see if they have any around.

I will. Or I could try and learn how to fix rams as new ones may become as rare as nuns in a brothel ^^

We had a tutorial thread at www.angelowners.com but it was lost in a software update. It's not hugely complicated though. You remove the retaining pin that holds the ram knob in place, drill out the back of the ram to the correct diameter so you can remove the piston, then you must fashion a spacer to fill up the empty space (various materials have been used, both metals and plastics). Alternatively, a user on these boards by the name of dodgeballers_ia performs the mod for a reasonable fee. His website is www.angel-verse.com

Thanks doc , I have just found a video on youtube explaining how to mod the ram.

But first , I have to get the angels . A bit off topic, but I sold my angels a few years ago and I am a bit unaware of their values by now .What do you think about these I have found for sale ?:

I'm not sure what the market is like in France, but if that is for both of those guns then that's right around $200 USD per gun, which is in the typical range for A1's here in the states.

Yes , even if the lot also includes a few spare parts and two loaders, one barrel front is missing, that is some issue for resale.
